Just found this little story about how a firefighter redesigned the evacuation plan for Callie Kirkpatrick Elementary, and is adjusting it for all schools. The story was published in the Kentucky Post Newspaper of all places...
Keith Velotta, of Menifee, Calif. is proof that PTA dads can do more than barbecue. He is using his expertise as a Garden Grove fire captain to make Menifee schools safer.
Velotta revamped the emergency evacuation plan for Callie Kirkpatrick Elementary School, where he served as PTA president three years ago. The former plan was designed by a teacher, not someone experienced in emergency evacuations, Velotta said.
Now, in his capacity as Menifee PTA Council's executive vice president of leadership and training, Velotta is tweaking the Callie Kirkpatrick plan for each of the district's school sites. When done, there will be a consistent emergency action plan throughout Menifee Union School District.
